Before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had been fully fleshed out, they were nothing more than an idea on a napkin. One simple idea on a piece of serviette in a bar launched a franchise and brand that's still going strong today. To pay homage to Kevin Eastman's original drawing of his and Peter Laird's creation, Mondo is bringing that original concept art to life in a limited edition action figure known simply as The First Turtle.

According to Latino Review, after a long search, Butterfield has secured the role of Peter Parker for Sony’s newer, hipper, younger, version of Spider-Man. Word on the Interwebs (heh) claims this new Spider-Man will make his onscreen debut in next March’s Captain America: Civil War before spinning off into his own solo movie franchise that will be released by Sony but made in conjunction with Marvel and would be considered part of the official Marvel Cinematic Universe. That film (or, let’s be honest, franchise) would be separate from the animated Spider-Man movie that is also currently in development at Sony, under the direction of Lego Movie filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
If you fancy yourself a fan of Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and Killian Plunkett's Superman: Red Son, or you know, socialism in general, then Sideshow's newest premium format figure collection just might be the one you're looking for.
NBC’s cancellation of Constantine set off the familiar scramble to find the series a new home, though showrunner Daniel Cerone seemed optimistic The CW might look to add to its growing DC stable, with whom crossover talks have already occurred. Not so it seems, as The CW may not be Constantine’s salvation after all.
With Chadwick Boseman set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the currently-filming Captain America: Civil War, we should be hearing about the director of the solo Black Panther film soon enough. While we’re still fired up over the possibility of Selma’s Ava DuVernay possibly taking the gig, another very interesting name has entered the fray.
Rocksteady Studios' upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight is just a little over a month away from release, but that didn't stop Warner Bros. from announcing a new bundle for the trilogy finale.
According to a new Amazon listing, Batman: Arkham Knight will be offered in a package deal that includes the game, a first appearance skin, and a new 25th anniversary edition hardcover of Grant Morrison and Dave McKean's Batman: Arkham Asylum graphic novel.
The first trailer for Jon M. Chu’s Jem and the Holograms has arrived, and as indicated by a few of the photos released yesterday, this take on the classic ‘80s cartoon star is a bit more…serious. There are a couple of moments that promise levity and comedy, like Juliette Lewis’ record exec assuring the girls that it’s not them on that poster — “It’s Photoshop.” This new Jem doesn’t seem truly outrageous at all. She just seems a bit broody.
Marvel is definitely not messing around right now. In addition to hiring a pair of talented ladies to script their upcoming Captain Marvel solo film, the studio has their eye on one very awesome woman of color to take on one of their “diverse” upcoming movies: Selma director Ava DuVernay is reportedly being courted by Marvel for either Captain Marvel or Black Panther, and either film could benefit from having DuVernay behind the camera.
Arrow Season 3 will wind down this week as Constantine frantically scours the tube for a new home after its NBC cancellation, but could the two end up intertwined? Stephen Amell has expressed an interest in doing a crossover with DC’s demon-fighting detective, which apparently has almost come to fruition before.
The first trailer for Fox's Lucifer TV adaptation is here, and it looks bad. Much like iZombie, this series looks to have sacrificed most of what made it vivid in the name of providing yet another procedural. Cop and wacky sidekick? What’s the new angle? Oh, he’s literally the devil. I coulda just watched The Collector.
